How can you estimate if you're going to break your leg or not lol?

When I took that fall on White Horse it definitely effected my climbing. In a way it was a great experience, the whole system worked and I only bumped my knee but it shattered the facade, my hubris and newbie sense of confidence. Now as soon as I feel in over my head, my leg starts shaking and my climbing goes out the window.

I feel some good negative karma point here :)

It is my question mostly. I was with my climbing boot, I was going down a stairs, the soil at the bottom was frozen ice. As soon as I put the feet on the ice. Zoup!!! I was falling on my new operate carpal tunnel hands without hiting my head on the last stair.

Now I am scare and I don't want to go down a stair because they must have ice.

if there is no ice, I was not afraid and I can go down the stair. The first time I fall and after...I was more subtil. I stop at the end of the stair and place my feet in a way that the weight of my body was directly on my feet. so, I can not fall to the right, nor to the left or backward. As I no the level of risk, I still can down climb the stairs, but i have more experience.

the question is how to get that experiences before a serious accident? i often say, and I still think like that, that bailing hurt more than a broken leg in certain conditions. A leg will take one or two month to health, but you will remember all your life that you mist your goal because you didn't have the ball.

The great line o fall time   --If keith richards is  alive,I'll have another drink

sorry for your friends.
It is the two extreme: doing nothing or going to our death. It is all about climbing: the real chalenge. I am always scare to died and I never want to stay home. where is the line? for some people, the bottom line will be no risk at all. for some other it will suicide. But for a lot of people, some thing in a middle wil be good. this is climbing. I think that to know the level of risk, we must have a knowledge of all aspect of climbing and train to know if we have the knowledge. If I want todo vertigo, I know that there is a finger crack in the third pitch and an off with. If I train in a gym to do crimp....not sure if it is not dagnerous to try it.

Bad experience is good because it is where you learn and also to prepare the climb. I like if the guide going outside teach how to look at a cliff and calculate where you are going to place the belay and try to find those places as they climb. Bad experiences at little doses. As you follow and experience climber, yo can be better than him, but he can bring you on problem that will save your life after.

Or you can folllow a set of bolt.

Keith's recent autobiography is a pretty good read. Also, podcast Terry Gross fresh air interview. Interesting guy.
Sorry, off topic, I lost focus. Whats the difference between Sport and Trad again?
